    I feel like I need to save some iso to level characters, but I like the idea of release events like this, just like I liked the idea of the updated characters having extra mini events to give covers.

    I also haven't a clue how I will manage to get enough covers to level rogue to level 251.
    at this time I only see a decent way to get 4 covers or so (one here, one from PVE placement as I am not going to be able to get more than one, one from PVE progression on the second event, and one from the rogue vault) which leaves me far from the 13 required covers to get her to 251 (as a character with 12 covers only goes to 250)

    thus I am assuming the end of this event is strictly for whales given it's a 7 day event and you are expecting people to basically champ rogue in that time?

    Awesome! Is this a one-off special event, or should we expect to see these somewhat frequently?

    Are these levels accurate, namely lvl 251? Will it even be possible for us to get enough Rogue covers in the next five days to reach that level? Or are these stated levels tiered for characters that are already in packs and because Rogue is brand new her level requirements will be reduced?

    So those later missions will only be playable by people who somehow get up to 5 to 13 covers for a newly released character who isn't in tokens yet?

    Kind of a bummer. :(
    Yes, you will be required to level her up in order to play the later missions.

    As with any 4-Star character, Level 78 is attainable with 2 covers, level 111 is attainable with 4 covers, level 169 is attainable with 8 covers, and level 251 is attainable with 13 covers.

    Ugh! The choice of Prox X and 4* Clops kills my advancement in this event. Both of mine have very few covers. :(
    I have the covers from being a long term player, but given both characters were only recently opened back up from vaulting, and I don't think either has been a PVE reward in over a year, they are poor choices for anyone that isn't a day 1000 or higher player.

    they likely should have run some events with them, and let people know they would be required so people had time to get some covers and build up some iso to level characters.

    I mean I recently had a 4* wolverine and RIRI cover on the vine with both having enough to champ and I sold the wolverine because he still isn't very good while RIRI has her uses after the changes. who knew I would have to level him so soon after doing that lol.

    Actually 8 covers gets you to 168

    So about this point.  This might require a considerable bit of ISO for some people. This normally would not be a big deal, but since the time limit of the event, is  rather short, would you guys consider extending the event, or somehow make sure the hard working players get enough ISO from this event to level Rogue?

    Nope,  click the top right area of your game display, select mother lode, buy, repeat till required level is achieved

    Aside from the required node's scaling, I love this idea. But 251? get out

    And knowing that there could be these for Nightcrawler and Gambit too makes me less likely to spend my hoard on just Rogue.

    Also seems like a catch 22 cause arent the pull rates for 5 stars suppose to 1/4 for the anniversery? 

    Either blow your hoard trying to cover Rogue in a week to finish this mini-event or save for anni to try and build 5s.
    I don't know where you got this idea (1/4), but....it seems unlikely. Also, Rogue won't enter legendaries until midday on Thursday the 5th, if past patterns hold.  So you would not face a choice here in terms of trying to pull a Rogue for this event.

    Given that this event only lasts a week, this will only be beneficial to the big spenders in this game.

    Given that we've only been given a day's notice, the people that could theoretically prepare for an event like this won't have time.

    Interesting concept. If this announcement were for this event to start first of November, I'd be excited.

    At least they gave you this to announce today, so we could get on with the disappointment that inevitably comes alongside a good announcement.
